Kiwanis Club and DEA share in project


The Swainsboro Kiwanis Club’s mission to help children received some assistance from David Emanuel Academy’s first grade art class. 

Under the direction of Hannah Way, students decorated 72 door hangers that have been mailed to the Aflac Cancer Center at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA).  This center is a home away from home for many cancer and blood disorder patients. 

The Swainsboro Kiwanis Club began its involvement with CHOA when Andy Pipkin of Thomasville was the Georgia District Governor.  Through Pipkin’s efforts, Kiwanis Clubs throughout Georgia have become affiliated with this children’s cancer center through monetary donations.  Although the pandemic has limited some projects of Kiwanis, the local club has maintained its presence in the lives of children across the state and senior adults here at home. 

If you would like to become a member of the Kiwanis Club, please contact membership chair Jane Durden at 478-494-4113 or e-mail her at  Also, to obtain additional information about the club and the many community service projects performed each year, visit the club’s website at or see the Swainsboro Kiwanis Facebook page.
